Youmna Chlala: Days of Being Wild
For her Musée Miniscule project, Youmna Chlala presents a new video, Days of Being Wild, filmed on location in Cairo, Egypt. The video documents a walled balcony where two small children play soccer, illuminating the vertical mosaic of city life. Though universal in subject matter, Chlala's video lovingly documents modern Cairo, where life and leisure occur above the city, behind walls, blurring public and private space. Presented within the compact interior of the Musée Miniscule, the intimate size of the Days of Being Wild mirrors Chlala's original vantage point, highlighting her voyeurism, and compounding how an audience witnesses, and is complicit, in an innocent private act.
